4.5 stars for "With Malice"
I really enjoyed this book, it had me guessing and trying to figure out what really happened the entire time. The reason for the 1/2 star is for a reason I won't share since it contains spoilers.
I had a few favorite parts from this book.
1. Toxic friendships. People grow apart when their lives go different directions and friendships in high school are interesting. When you are there you think how can you ever live life without the friends you have in that moment?
2. Jill's character. It was interesting to see her struggle with what was reality vs images she made up based on information she had heard. The brain is a complex thing and Cook does a phenomenal job of showing how it works.
3. The ending. The last quote was icing on the cake!
Really good fast read!

This book was listed as a mystery thriller and yeah it was a mystery but not so much a thriller. It's about two besties who get in a car accident abroad and one ends up dead. The other is suspected of murder but has no memory of the events leading up to or right after the accident. The story itself was pretty good and moved along at a steady pace. By the middle I had a good idea of the girls friendship dynamic and had basically figured out the gist of what had happened. I'm a fan of books that involve memory loss and piecing the past together but the overall plot in this wasn't as exciting as I had expected. Maybe it's because the book was pretty hyped up before I read it. Oh well. The main character Jill was kind of bland. I didn't connect with her. I found myself more just wanting to find out what happened than actually caring about the outcome for her. At least it was a quick listen.
